Ascent Trip Report

After Bodie Mtn, drove via USFS road 2149. My initial plan was to take road 820 and road 822, but 820 is bermed and decommissioned at the junction with 2149. I returned south to road 2150 and followed it to the minor ridge where I turned north onto spur 100. I followed this to its end, which is at about 4250' and a bit west of where it is mapped.

From here a faint track heads north to the peak, soon fading away and leaving you to pick a way through the fairly open vegetation and around and over the rock bands to the top. See the attached GPS route.
